Light orange beer with a pinkish hue. White head disappears quickly and leaves no lacing. The aroma is funky, tart with strawberries and rhubarb in there. The taste is slightly sweet and tart with the strawberries and rhubarb hiding in there. I get this weird plastic taste that turns me off.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Aroma has some really dusty fruits and a a light cardboard note. Taste is tart, dusty with some generic fruit notes and a hint of aspirin.

750ml bottle purchased at total wine in Charleston for $16, bottled on 2-3-2017 so it is still being brewed.
A: pours a cloudy wheat straw color, thin wispy white foam head that quickly fades to the perimeter, carbonation, some spotty lacing
S: rhubarb, strawberries, salty sour grain aroma, some light earthy funk
M: light body, sort of juicy finish
T: salty sour taste straight up front, hints and I mean hints of strawberries and rhubarb, sour funk in the finish
O: I'm a big fan of New Glarus strawberry and rhubarb brew and being from the south was excited to see this, but I should have thought this was a similar brew. Overall it's a good brew but more along the lines of Berlineer Weisse (sourness is most pronounced + hints of the strawberry and rhubarb)

"Stop! Commence the sippin' Westbrook is back with a brand new invention with this not-so-traditional twist on our German-style Berliner Weisse. Rhubarb Remix is brewed with the traditional no-boil method, and then infused with strawberries and rhubarb." Brewed in the style of a Berliner Weissbier with strawberry and rhubarb, available in 750 ml. bottles and on limited draft. One-time limited run release.

Poured from a 750 ml. bottle to a tulip glass. Served above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, fizzy head of an ecru white over a moderately hazy amber standard body with ample, lively carbonation. Retention is below average, lacing is light and spotty. 3.25

(Smell) Striking sourness and funk up front, with a curious blend of essence of strawberry puree and some enhanced tanginess. Not being all too familiar with rhubarb, I'm not sure if it generates much impact in the aroma, but the strawberries are ideal, very unique, very clean and moderately dry aroma. Potency is moderate. 3.75

(Taste) Sharp sourness and tart flavors up front, strikingly dry with a light unmalted wheat base and evident funk and tangy character in the dry finish. Unfortunately the evident strawberry from the aroma isn't as well defined in the flavor, masked by the intensity of the tart and sour character, rhubarb also doesn't leave much of a footprint, although it may have more of an impact over the perceived sourness and acidity of the beer altogether. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) The texture is silky, moderately acidic and tangy, very clean, moderately dry. Carbonation is brisk, generating a moderate frothiness and a fully crisp finish. Body is medium+ for the style, shy of medium overall. Balance is considerably tart and acidic, mildly funk over sweetness. Alcohol presence is mild and there are no off characters. 3.75

(Overall) I felt obligated partway through the review to investigate what others perceive the flavor of Rhubarb to be, and although it initially came through as quite transparent against the tart and funk character of a Berliner Weissbier, this may be the ale that Rhubarb best works with, as Rhubarb contributes acidic, tart and tangy flavors when consumed raw, and is commonly integrated with baked pastries alongside strawberries. I was a bit disappointed that the strawberry character was more limited in the flavor than the aroma suggested, but was altogether pleased with the strong tartness and acidity of this beer- perhaps the rhubarb came through in the end. The tanginess almost borders perceptibly salty, placing this beer for me curiously between the Berliner Weissbier and a Gose. 3.5
